not only a minimum weight of tin per base box, but that this tin shall be evenly distributed over the surface 
of the plate.

USE OF MAILS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS 

The department on September 4, 1930, addressed a letter to the Postmaster 
General, Washington, D. C, as follows: 

I have the honor to bring to your attention a copy of the virus-serum-toxin act (37 Stat. 832), approved 
March 4, 1913, the test of which will be found in inclosed B. A. I. Order No. 276, which deals with the 
preparation, transportation, and importation of viruses, serums, toxins, and analogous products intended 
for use in the treatment of domestic animals. The act prohibits the importation of such products unless the 
importer holds a permit from this department. 

It has come to our attention that these products, and for which no permit has been issued, are occasionally 
received in this country through the mails. Since they are potentially dangerous, and therefore may be 
the means of introducing diseases nonexistent in the United States, this department will very much appre- 
ciate any action that may be taken by your department, with the view of better controlling the importation 
of viruses, serums, toxins, or analogous products intended for use in the treatment of domestic animals. 

May I suggest that whenever a postmaster receives a package containing any of these products or cultures 
or organisms used in their preparation the matter be brought to the attention of a local inspector of the 
United States Bureau of Animal Industry, if there be any with whom he may communicate; and, if not, 
that the matter be brought to the attention of this office? 

Under date of September 10, 1930, the Second Assistant Postmaster General 
replied as follows: 

The Postmaster General has asked me to acknowledge your letter of September 4 relative to transporta- 
tion in the mails of certain products which violate the virus-serum-toxin act of March 4, 1913. The matter 
will have attention, and postmasters will be instructed to report the receipt of mails containing the pro- 
hibited articles as outlined in the last paragraph of your letter. 

Inspectors in charge are instructed to assist postmasters in whatever manner 
seems required by local conditions with the view of preventing importations of 
veterinary biologic products in any manner except by an importer holding a 
permit from the Secretary, as required by the virus-serum-toxin law (37 Stat. 
832). All irregularities in this respect should be brought to the attention of the 
bureau before disposal of the products has been made. 



PERMITTED DISINFECTANT 

In accordance with the provisions of B. A. I. Order 309, governing the inter- 
state movement of livestock, the bureau has granted permission to Barker, Moore 
& Mein Co., of Philadelphia, Pa., for the distribution and use of "Sherwin- 
Williams 50% Cresol Solution," under the name of "Barker's Saponified Cresol 



1930] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUNCEMENTS 81 

Solution " in the general disinfection of cars, yards, and other premises. Barker's 
saponified cresol solution is identical with Sherwin-Williams 50 per cent cresol 
solution, manufactured by the Sherwin-Williams Co., of Chicago, 111. 



CALENDARS FOR 1931 

Officers in charge and individuals reporting direct to Washington will please 
indicate in their stores requ ; sitions for December 1 orders for the wall calendars 
that they will require for the year 1931. One wall calendar should be sufficient 
for each room occupied as office or laboratory, and orders should be for minimum 
number. 

The bureau has discontinued the purchase of desk-calendar pads and stands for 
field stations. However, stations now equipped with such stands may procure 
pads for the same for 1931 by ordering on their stores requisitions for December 1 
the number required, indicating the make of the stand for which intended — that 
is, whether Gem, Handy, Daily, etc. These calendars and pads may not be 
forwarded with the other supplies ordered on such requisitions, but an effort will 
be made to get them to the stations before the first of the new j'ear. 

In this connection attention is called to the notice headed "Advertising matter 
not allowed in Government offices," In Service and Regulatory Announcements 
for November, 1915, page 127. 



PROCEEDINGS UNDER PACKERS AND STOCKYARDS ACT 

Docket No. 316. In re Meridian Union Stock Yards, market agency, Meridian, 
Miss. On July 9, 1930, the Acting Secretary issued an inquiry and notice, alleg- 
ing violations of the act by failure of respondent to execute and maintain i reason- 
able bond to secure the performance of its obligations. On July 25, 1930, the 
respondent acknowledged service of the order of inquiry, admitted the truth of 
the matters and things alleged, and waived a hearing. On September 15, 1930, 
the respondent was suspended from registration as a market agency for six months, 
with leave during said period to apply for revocation of this suspension upon 
showing satisfactory to the Secretary of Agiiculture that it has filed a reasonable 
bond to suitable trustees to secure the performance of its obligations as such 
market agency, and has filed with the Bureau of Animal Industry at Washington, 
D. C, a fully executed duplicate of said bond. The respondent was also ordered 
to cease and desist from doing business as a market agency without executing 
and maintaining a reasonable bond to suitable trustees to secure the performance 
of its obligations incurred as such market agency and without having on file with 
the Bureau of Animal Industry a fully executed duplicate of such bond or of 
some other satisfactory plan of guaranty. 

Docket No. 317. In re Keys Commission Co., market agency, St. Louis Na- 
tional Stock Yards, National Stock Yards, 111. On July 24, 1930, the Acting 
Secretary of Agriculture issued an inquiry and notice, alleging violation of the 
act by failure of respondent to execute and maintain a reasonable bond to secure 
the performance of its obligations. On August 12, 1930, respondent arranged 
with W E. Hilton & Co., a registered market agency at said stockyards, to clear 
its business as a market agency m h'eu of filing a bond, and that such arrangement 
for clearance is on file with the Bureau of Animal Industry. On August 25, 1930, 
the respondent acknowledged service of the order of inquiry, admitted the truth 
of the matters and things therein alleged, and waived a hearing thereon. On 
September 4, 1930, the respondent was ordered to cease and desist from doing 
business as a market agency without executing and maintaining a reasonable 
bond to suitable trustees to secure the performance of its obligations incurred as 
such market agency and without having on file with the Bureau of Animal In- 
dustry at Washington, D. C, a fully executed duplicate of such bond, or of some 
other satisfactory plan of guaranty.
